I agree. How incredibly sad.

When I was young I remember my mom having a hard time getting child support from my dad. He made a lot of threats to her and she let him off easy when they divorced, even though he had cheated on her for years. She let him off easy so he would continue to see us and pay child support. He was hardly ever around and anytime us kids did anything remotely bad he would threaten to stop paying and would hold money back if he thought we weren't doing well in school or behaving. He was really mean. He's a good dad now that I'm an adult and a great grandfather, but back then he was terrible to me and my siblings and I've forgiven him but I haven't forgotten about it all.
